Stay focused, Giants

The Giants won their biggest game of the year yesterday.

They were just a few innings from going 1-9 against the Padres and falling 4 1/2 games out.

They were a few innings from losing a series at home against the very team they should be chasing down.

But they came back, played smart baseball, Posey took an extra base and AT&T Park went nuts.

Congratulations. Now dust yourself off and do it again today.

This is what makes baseball the greatest sport of all and the most pressure packed in some ways. If a team wins a football game like this, there's a whole week to get ready for the next game. Basketball and hockey usually have a rest game.

In baseball? Yesterday's extra innings thriller is already in the "What have you done for me lately?" file.

Lincecum is on the mound. A loss today and it will still be a series loss at home to the team the Giants are trying to catch.

A win and suddenly the Giants will be 1 1/2 games out...3 back in the loss column and tied with the most wins in the NL.

Focus... focus..
